danger danger!: party after dark
Danger Danger! is a restaurant/nightclub which is very popular in downtown Whangarei. Danger Danger's famous meals consisting of a huge juicey steak, salad and fries all for the reasonable price of $9.90. They also have many other dishes on offer ranging from a 2 for 1 deal consisting of 2 burgers or pizzas for $5 on Tuesdays & Wednesdays, right through to curries, roasts, and seafood platters, all at varying prices. Oh yeah, kids are welcome at this place for dinner or lunch. Later in the evening it turns into an awesome nightclub for people of ages 18+. It has a dance cage for the more outgoing people as well as a dance pole and a moderate sized dance floor. During the winter months you will find many people in the club watching sports (rugby in particular) on the big screens where they can enjoy a beer by the generous sized fire. There are approximately 10 brightly coloured pool tables (purple, red, blue, yellow etc) for those of you who consider yourselves sharks. They also have an air hockey table, and a couple of arcade racing games. The music varies from rock - top40 - hip hop. The total inside of the building is made of native new zealand woods, in particular Kauri. And it also has a lot of memorabilia adorning the walls. Over all I would say it has the nicest ambience about it and definately worth checking out if your looking for a night out on the town.
